The Early Childhood Education (ECE), Infant Toddler program will give you the required skills and occupational competencies based upon the Ministry for Children and Family Development approved curriculum.
At Sprott Shaw College you will develop a broad range of skills through classroom study and hands-on practice through the certified and approved courses. You will gain the skills and knowledge to become a nurturing and understanding Caregiver/Educator, who will implement carefully selected materials and activities to help promote the social, emotional, physical, cognitive and early literacy development.
You will know how to develop and lead daily activities such as storytelling and finger plays, music and movement, songs and games, creative arts and crafts, science and nature, along with many other activities that support children’s development and learning through play. You will also be able to select age-appropriate materials for young children and develop programs and activities for the important early years of learning.
This program will also expand upon the skills gained through the Early Childhood Education Basic program.
There is a wide range of child, youth, and family focused support programs in BC, with greater opportunities existing for those who have specific knowledge in Infant & Toddler growth and development. Caregivers with formal credentials have better opportunities.
